Furutech FI-50 High-End IEC Connector Offers Innovative Construction for Ultra-Reliable Performance
Furutech's Pure Transmission FI-50 Piezo Ceramic series connector bodies and housings feature several breakthrough construction techniques. The overall construction was the result of extensive research and numerous listening sessions. The multilayer nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber shell incorporates a special damping and insulating acetal copolymer.
Carefully chosen and tested "active" materials mechanically and electrically damp the connector and receptacle as they "interconvert" thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy for the finest Furutech Pure Transmission signal possible.
The body of the connectors combines two "active" materials: Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. (Only nano-sized ceramic particles effectively couple with carbon powder.) Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well, forming an extremely effective, well-damped, mechanically and electrically non-resonant connector body.
Piezoelectric effects are the key. Furutech's breakthrough in design and materials is based on employing nano-sized polycrystalline ferroelectric ceramic particles exhibiting electro-generative properties; mechanical pressure creates an electrical charge forming a bridge between electrical and mechanical oscillation.
Carbon powder exhibits thermal-conductive characteristics that interact with the charged ferro-ceramic particles, converting their energy into heat that's conducted away and released from the surface of the connector body. This IEC connector comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
